jackson where the clinic is. the clinic's owner tells us their applications were 50 pages-plus per doctor, per hospital. the applications took weeks to compile. each hospital, each time. two of them, the big teaching hospital in the city and the baptist hospital in town, they wouldn't even accept the doctors' applications. five other hospitals did agree to receive the doctors' applications, but they rejected them. not only the merits of the doctors as doctors but for administrative reasons like the hospital's policies on abortion or concern about disrupting the hospital's business within the community. so this thing designed by mississippi republicans to be impossible turned out to be impossible. they wanted to create a new regulation that the state's one last abortion clinic could not follow. because they wanted to shut it down. and we know this because governor phil bryant said so on tape. >> i think it's historic. today you see the first step in a movement, i believe, to do what we campaigned on, to say we're going to try to end abortion in mississippi. >> it is constitutionally protec

in the small town of san pedro, belize. how does something like this happen? defense attorney joey jackson joins me. we were talking about it during the comercial. this is crazy story and everybody is watching this. this guy -- >> in a pickle. melissa: what do we know so far? >> we know a couple of things. we know he has this neighbor and him and his neighbor don't necessarily get along. of course mcafee has these dogs and neighbor is complainining about these dogs. he filed a complaint with the local authorities. the dog were barking. the dogs end up dead, shot and poisoned. it gets murky after that of course. then if youisten to mcafee's version of events he says listen, i'm not going anywhere. i'm leaving and no, i'm not surrendering myself. normally melissa that would be perceived as consciousness of guilt, because if you're not guilty you go to the authorities say, hey, what do you want, i'll talk to you, what's the problem? he is saying this is such distrust with law enforcement. these guys raided my house in april. accused me of guns. dropped charges. they accused of distributing d

's press secretary and attorney joey jackson. thanks o much for joining us, both of you. >> thanks, jenna. meliss aaron, i will start with you. this is a first but it's not, not totally unexpected. they're broke. what are they supposed to do? >> that's why you go to bankruptcy so the courts figure out who you owe first and who gets what money. you're exactly right they're broke. short of winning the powerball san bernardino has very few options. they have to cut services elsewhere to pay for pensions or raiseaxes to pay for the pensions. one way or another they will have to pay the bill. melissa: really? joey what do you think?. >> i think hes right. what is the smell? sweet smell of victory. ultimately i don't think municipality can get out of this. yes it is in federal court. the question becomes, does the federal government take priority, does the state take priority? back a long, long time ago, melissa when the atute was enacted for bankruptcy it has to be federal. state contract says you honor that obligation. i think states are sovereign. municipalities are sovereign. the fs will be

and with his help he ascended the jobs in the yet penetration of andrew jackson. first he helped him become the u.s. attorney general, then the secretary of the treasury and then in 1836 the chief justice of the supreme court. he went on to write the dred scott decision in 1857 which effectively legalized slavery and he's in the coming of the civil war so they were inseparable political figures in this period and influential and important in a way that is totally forgotten. in washington there is a bridge that crosses the potomac river in the park where he used to live and in the park there's lots of exhibits that are devoted to him and there is one that says he was active in antislavery causes and this is wrong, completely wrong. it would be more active to say that he was active in suppressing the antislavery causes. part of the point of the book is to remind people of things we really don't want to remember about our own history so this is also a book about the real francis scott key but i don't want to give the wrong impression. this book is not a polemical book or out to score points. i
